  Detroit Institute of Art
 
After six years in the making, it’s time to celebrate the opening of the new DIA. With a rich history dating back to 1885, the Detroit Institute of Arts has been the cultural gem of the city of Detroit for over a century. We invite you to learn more about our journey and the new and exciting things to come. The new DIA. Let yourself go!
The DIA has been a beacon of culture for the Detroit area for well over a century. Founded in 1885, the museum was originally located on Jefferson Avenue, but, due to its rapidly expanding collection, moved to a larger site on Woodward Avenue in 1927. The new Beaux-Arts building, designed by Paul Cret, was immediately referred to as the “temple of art.” Two wings were added in the 1960s and 1970s, and a major renovation and expansion that began in 1999 is scheduled for completion in 2007. The museum covers 600,000 square feet that includes more than 100 galleries, an 1,150-seat auditorium, a 380-seat lecture/recital hall, an art reference library, and a state-of-the-art conservation services laboratory. The current renovation and expansion will add 77,000 square feet
